    Spencer, I am so sorry for not checking back sooner. As I'm puzzled at what the cause is for losing your internet connection I put a search on & here is what I came up with http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6122_102-0.html?threadID=168443 As you can see this person didn't find a fix after following these steps, but may prove useful for you. I haven't found anything other than the above link to address your particular problem. Though I believe it is now centering on modem troubleshooting, I do not want to steer you in the wrong way. Also, of value is other forums. Of such is http://www.howtogeek.com/ Also, as you have keep checking back here and someone from the forum team will swing by and help. I will research some more on this. Good luck and best regards

    Now that you have it flashed back, the flashing tools will recognize it properly, so just download an official BIOS for your board, and reflash.

    If that doesn't fix it, try redownloading the official lan drivers for your board.

    It sounds like some sort of corruption issue. whether it's windows or the BIOS, is yet to be seen.

    Hate to double post, but have an idea. Spencer are both your computers running Vista? The reason being the account names need to be identical on both computers as well as enabling the net bios name over tcpip on both . Have you tried disabling all firewalls or any security the would prohibit connecting? Also, you could go into safe mode with networking and try to connect. This will eliminate software being the cause. I am assuming you have already went thru the processes of ip resetting and pinging. On the Vista machine go to the Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, make sure the Network discovery is enabled.
    Please post back as to your progress. Regards...gwb56

    spencer221, Yes these things do need to be done on the computer that doesn't have any connection, which is Vista. Please, turn off both computers and reset everything. To make sure you are assigned an IP address, go into RUN, type cmd, then Okay and in the CP type in ipconfig/all to see if you do have an IP address. If you have an IP address asigned, then go here and follow these instructions http://tinyurl.com/5ntpco If your still having no connection, go into Control Panel, Network Connections, Properties, click on Internet Protocal {TCP/IP} to highlight, Properties and finally tick Obtain an IP address automatically. Restart and see if you can connect. Please, post back if you're still having problems. Regards...gwb56


    type to see if you have a IP address, if not shut down all computers and reset ADSL modem and router.

    Spencer23, Good to hear that you are up and running again. I did consider this to be a possibility, but wanted to cancel all else out before you had to actually go spend some money. Here is the site for your card's drivers...http://tinyurl.com/nd9wpk My best regards, gwb56

    You are welcome, spencer. By OC and after looking at your specs I think you want to overclock your system. I'm sorry, but I am lacking knowledge in this area. At the bottom of this page in Forum Jump, there is an area listed as Overclocking and Cooling. This is where you would want to post your question and to get the proper help that you need. I did notice in your specs your PSU (Power Supply Unit) and I am slightly concerned of this, though you may be okay. Please refer to this tool http://tinyurl.com/PSU-Calculator It will give you an estimate on how much wattage is required for your system. Always good to go a little above what the tool lists for you. You should post in the Hardware section of the forum to get information on your PSU.Best regards...gwb56
